Hi all,

It seems after just 6 months, problems have started showing up on my new Fiesta. Shes been booked in on the 27th May for the following faults:

Rear Washer jet motor making strange noises
Radio not working sometimes
Passanger rear side trim falling off
Rattles in the following areas, Glove box/air vent and drivers door
indicator swtich not clicking off when going left
Boot not opening sometimes

:unsure: Also having a go at ford for the poor qulitaly of the floor mats....

Apart from the above, all is fine :lol:

You should have got some at Mountune yesterday - I love mine, very thick quality.

Thats quite a list of things faulty, the passenger door trim falling off is terrible :o :o mine goes in tomorrow regarding the indicator - same issue as yours, also about reverse gear - which actually has improved alot over the last couple of weeks.

I really hate reading posts like this :blink: I'm almost expecting my car to fall apart now, when it finally arrives :unsure:

I hope Ford get all this fixed quickly for you Mark :) Equally hoping that my one never develops these problems ;)

Sorry to hear this Mark--I hope you get it sorted pdq--we all want our happy Mark back!

However, I agree with you about the mats--they are a bit cheap and cheerful but as yet they haven't worn out........

The indicator not cancelling is a pain in the a**e but I've just about got used to it now! ;)

Of course not....you can make thousands of cars but mistakes occur....after all nobody's perfect are they?

Well, except me of course!!! :lol:

You'll always get teething problems with new cars--what's more important is how you are treated if you have any problems.

Hence why I try to buy from my local dealer--I always get prompt and courteous service as they value my business--unlike an agent who's only interested in the sale......and my money of course!

Wassup with your speaker johnny?

Hedgepig course your perfect :rolleyes:

I know new things have teething problems. I'm used to that with small gadgets (Blackberry Bold, Blackberry Storm sheesh). But the Fiesta is going to be my biggest gadget and its kinda expensive to return! I think it should be ok and my only problem with it will probably be the small amount of mileage I do. Should have just got a bicycle :lol:
